I totally don’t remember taking these photos — probably the result of having taken them after having to work 16 10-16 hour days straight. Some of them are in weirdly soft focus and the EXIF data says they were shot with very long exposure times, so I must have had the camera in my hands.. somehow. I have no clue. Either way I’m glad I’ve got them because that haunted house was totally badass.

Believe it or not, the hardest part of this was just trying to figure out how to get my hair into the right sort of bun to secure it to.

After taking it all out later my hair is comically big from being rolled into a bun. Just can’t really go wrong here.
This whole piece weighs damn near nothing. It’s just really light and springy.
A while back, Dominik at Slaughterhouse Apparel was just getting his amazing line of post-apocalyptic grunge fashions going and he was looking for a logo.
I designed one using a composite of textures sampled from photographs of decayed materials around the office of the moment to make it look like old stencilled paint on a surface that’s all being slowly reclaimed by the elements.
Then, he had it screen printed on T-shirts and I just had to have one. Yes.
